Описание: This striking book represents the personal odyssey of antique dealer, collector and jewelry lover Mimi Lipton. Over the years, she has amassed a superb collection of uncut precious and semi-precious stones, along with antique pieces of carved amber and jade, all of them found or acquired on her many journeys around the globe. Now, in collaboration with seven international contemporary jewelers from France, China, Nepal, Iceland, Argentina and the UK, these original elements have been transformed into more than eighty beautiful and arresting pieces of jewelry. Inspired by the original, uncut form of their gemstones, or in some cases the pieces of antique ethnic jewelry that are their starting point, these are transformational works of sculptural, organic drama, as timeless as they are contemporary.
